^' The time had now oome when the Liord
.Tosus was to he publicly manifested uk the
hod of David and the King of Israel. Hitherto
He had refused the demands of the
multitude, who, after Ilis Galilean mira eles,
had tried 'Ho lake Him by force and
make lliin n. Icing;" but now as the end
draws near it is proper that lie should lit errilly
fulfil the announcements of ancient
prophecy, and for a brief moment, at least,
appear as the heir to David's throne and
the answer to all tlio Messianic hopes of
Israel. *
I. The Hecognition of the King. It was
strancc that the firnt to recognize Him as
Israel's King fhould he two blind bep^arx.
Thnt which the rulers of Israel, with all
their wisdom, failed to comprehend, was
discovered by poor old Bartimens and his
Diin<l companion, (.'ailing Him by His Messianic
nomc, they cried, as th? procession
pressed by, "Jesus, TIioji Son of David,
nave mercy on lis!" When .Tcsu,r heard
that no me He instantly ordered the procession
to halt, ?tnd, calling them to llim,
granted their petition like a kinur. bidding
them receivc their sight und follow Ifirn
in the way.
So still it is over true, "Thou h?6t hid
these things from the wise and prudent and
revealed them unto babes." The wisdom
of the world and even t h?? culture of theological
science have blinded men to the
vision of God, and it is the lowly and often
illiterate to whom the Holy Ghost reveals
"the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven"

If. Tlio Tdanifestation of the Kincr. An
ncnt propilccy had foretold the coming of
the King of meekness, truth and love, and
Hit? triumphal entry into .Jerusalem was a
striking fulfillment. Zechariah especially

in this chapter. "Kojoice greatly.
